A brief history of 8-bit art and its ongoing evolution

Interest in 8-bit games and art is far from passé; just look at two recent posts in this very feature that show interest in the art-form is alive and well.

Here, they explore the evolution of 8-bit art from the earliest videogames through its nostalgia-based resurgence to its current growth in aesthetic appeal in both graphics and music. It's a compelling look at art that continues to evolve even as the technology it's based in remains outdated.
